CALIOP is a two-wavelength polarization-sensitive lidar that provides high-resolution vertical profiles of aerosols and clouds CALIOP utilizes three receiver channels: one measuring the 1064 nm backscatter intensity and two channels measuring orthogonally polarized components of the 532 nm backscattered signal. The main content of this product are 5 km aggregated aerosol backscatter and extinction profiles (https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/calipso/aerosol_profile_table).
